Mitt Romney refuses to take questions from children on ‘Kids Pick the President’, Obama participated

October 8, 2012

Nickelodeon states that Mitt Romney opted out of the chance to take part in a “Kids Pick the President” special that includes his President Obama. The  TV channel for children said Monday that the Republican Presidential candidate declined to be involved in the special, while President Obama participated, the AP reports.

Videotaped questions are included in the program for the candidates from children across America. Afterward, viewers can vote for their pick for president.

The show’s host and producer Linda Ellerbee said that candidates show “respect for kids” by answering their questions and called Romney’s decision disappointing. This isn’t the first time Romney has shunned questions, but it is from children.  I’m going to wager a guess – the disrespect shown, will cost Romney votes with children today for their pick. Perhaps children have more common sense than adults, considering the the number of Romney supporters — some of which did not care for him only months ago. There is something wrong with a politician who cannot take children’s questions, yet feels he can lead the most powerful country on Earth.

The Romney campaign did not immediately respond to phone and email requests for comment.

In the Nickelodeon special, Obama is asked about issues including jobs, immigration and bullying.

It will air on Oct. 15, with no answers from Mitt Romney.

    That's sad. It's also a stupid mistep for Mit.

    I remember watch Linda Ellerbee do that when I was a kid and my kids watch it, too. It's a teachable moment. I'm surprised that anyone would opt out of such an easy, feel good type thing.

    *Restrains myself from making a 47% joke* lol

    He probably felt talking with kids was pointless. They can't vote. What they can do is go home and tell Mom, dad, grandpa, grandma and all the other aunts and uncles who can vote that Romney couldn't bother to answer childrens questions. I hope they do. Just means potentially more votes for Obama. ;)

    I couldn't have said this better myself! Hopefully, it costs Romney for having his head so far up his ass....that'll be just what he deserves.

    Romney doesn't hide/made it very clear that certain people don't matter to him.

    I've never felt Rommey was a bright person.  Now, I know he isn't.  I agree with you.  Wish all children would do this.
